In the reality of things, we have some folks who only teach on-line. And we're supposed to evaluate their teaching.
Usually, to evaluate teaching, we look at:
a teaching observation (written report by a tenured person re a class observation)
teaching materials provided by the candidate
To this point, we don't know how to do an observation of on-line teaching. Does anyone have ideas about how that might be done?
To this point, on-line students don't much click and do the course evaluations.
I'd really appreciate ideas, especially from folks who've taught or evaluated on-line teaching, for how to evaluate folks who are teaching on-line.
